We share the statement of the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2024 Budapest below:
The Hungarian Astronautical Society (MANT) in collaboration with HUNGEXPO Budapest Congress and Exhibition Centre and CongressLine Ltd. proposes to host the 75th International Astronautical Congress in Budapest, in October 2024. Our proposal is supported by the Department of Space Research and Activities at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Municipality of Budapest and a number of Hungarian stakeholders.
The proposed date for IAC 2024 is September 30 – October 4, 2024,
and the proposed venue is the exhibition site of HUNGEXPO in Budapest. There are several hotels nearby, including Expo Congress Hotel on the site itself. For those having accommodation outside of the Congress Site we offer regular, free shuttle buses from the nearest metro station as well as a free public transportation pass for the whole city during the conference week.
We are proud that MANT was the host of the 34th IAF Congress in Budapest in 1983. It would be a great honor to host the 75th IAC in 2024, just a bit more than 40 years after the former one. Our Advisory Board benefits from the support of numerous Hungarian stakeholders, while the President of our Advisory Board – Prof. Iván Almár – has a long and distinguished history with the IAF, as he was the main organizer of the 34th IAF Congress in 1983. Our Local Organizing Committee is full of enthusiastic professionals, and led by Dr. László Bacsárdi, IAF YSL 2017.
